Edmund Barton Centre Port Macquarie-Hastings

Welcome to the Edmund Barton Centre Port Macquarie-Hastings

Port Macquarie Area

This North Coast region is proud of its coastal towns, national parks, surf beaches and heritage areas. Here you can enjoy wildlife spotting – whales, dolphins and koalas – or just hit the beach for a paddle or surf before sampling one of the award-winning local wines.

Thanks to its idyllic climate and setting, the area attracts artists who contribute to a thriving arts scene. The city has a five-star array of beaches, from Town Beach at the very front of the city centre, to the 16 km golden swathe of North Beach on the far side of the Hastings River.

Port Macquarie also has a fine range of accommodation, dining and activity options that make this a favourite for families and an outstanding choice for a holiday base. Be sure to also visit Wauchope –a lively town and gateway to over 40,000 hectares of national parks and state forests.

The Edmund Barton Centre is proud to offer their Programs in the Port Macquarie region through John Oxley and our team of volunteer Mentors phone 0437 882 002 for further information meetings by appointment.
